Blogger Lauren Felton took this photograph of a teapot. This was a way for her to rethink ‘the mundane’. She wrote in Literary Lens in 2009:
The subject of photographing the mundane reminded me of Irving Penn and his idea that “photographing cake can be art,” speaking to the way we photograph images rather than what we photograph. An artist can capture anything and make it worthwhile or beautiful, regardless of whether they are photographing some sort of decisive moment or a simple piece of cake.
I like it – the mundane is beautiful.
